We now have a defibrillator, thanks to the hard work of Linda Ganter in making this happen. There was a training programme this afternoon (Saturday January 20th). Here’s Zana’s Facebook post about it “Just completed a very informative defibrillator/CPR training course at the club along with 18 others. There are still spaces on the second course on 17 February – definitely worth the two hours. You could help save someone’s life. Thank you Linda Ganter for organising and to the Club for providing.”
Well done also to the U14 boys (Matt Tarling, Freddie Schlag, Josh Mortimer and Jacob Diskin) for beating David Lloyd Farnham yesterday! All in all a very successful weekend!
Entering into the spirit of Christmas … even if it is cold!
Winter,and its frosty weather, has definitely begun and Christmas will soon be upon us, so rather belatedly here are some photos from the last big event at the club in the summer – Finals weekend. Apologies for not being able to make these photos available more promptly.

A huge WELL DONE to our junior teams that all played so well this weekend in the winter county leagues. The U16 Girls 1’s (Georgie Charles & Emily Pagan) beat Active Academy in an extremely tight match, and the U12 boys (Sam Cawood, Finn Baker-Grace, Sam Fussey and Freddie Schlag) had an excellent convincing win against Manydown. The U16 Girls 2’s (Willow Cockerill & Savanna Cockerill) lost a tough match to Winchester. Well done to all of you, and thank you to the parents for your support.
October 26th, so not quite Hallowe’en but that didn’t stop us getting into the spirit of the occasion (pun intended!): fancy dress, spooky decorations and fiendish questions. A great evening – led as always by Vicky Judge. Many thanks to everyone who came and especially to Vicky who put so much into making the evening such a success.
And the winners were …
Well done to them and to the Ghouls Aloud team who won the prize for the best team name.

The Macmillan coffee morning on Friday 29th September was a great success. The usual team of tennis ladies got together and organised it . They were supported by so many people who brought delicious cakes and helped on the day where they could. Pat Seymour brought a wonderful quilt to raffle, Chris Butt brought her beautiful paintings and Rukeyah Sturgeon also donated a wonderful landscape painting to raffle. Anne Hanson brought her cards to sell and gave the money to the fund . Joan Jones brought such a fantastic cake that we gave that as a prize. All these ladies always support us with their beautiful work.
The raffle prizes that people donated were plentiful ! The raffle went on for half an hour! It was a lovely morning and so good to see lots of people who have always been part of the club there drinking delicious coffee and chatting to each other.
On Friday afternoon we banked £459 which will hopefully increase when gift aid is added. We would like to thank everyone who was there for making it such a successful event.
